What To Do After Losing A Tooth
As children, we lose our deciduous teeth over time. However, in adulthood, losing teeth is caused by oral health issues. Periodontal disease leads to major tooth loss. Since losing teeth at adulthood isn’t natural, this means problems. You could have problems with nutritional intake. Problems talking clearly may develop. Finally, you could risk negative changes to your smile, or even smile’s stability. You need a skilled in-network dentist in Loch Arbour, NJ who can correct your tooth loss. Fortunately, Doctors Network can help locate one.
First, we will connect you to an experienced dentist in your location who accepts your insurance. After that, your new dentist can evaluate your smile to diagnose the conditions for your missing teeth. For mild cases, a dental bridge could be the best option, restoring smile function. For several gaps, partial dentures could offer a solution and rebuild your smile. Finally, a complete denture could be crafted and secured. While most fulls and partial dentures are removable, they could be supported with titanium implants. Dental implants are secured like natural teeth, and prevent negative changes to your mandible and maxilla and facial structure following tooth loss.
If you live in the Loch Arbour area and have unsightly gaps in your smile, let us know. We can help you get started on receiving a dental prosthetic. A full smile is possible, even if you’ve lost all of your teeth, and even if years have elapsed since that happened!
